Alright! It’s February gang! One month closer to springtime. Today has been a hectic one for me, as I’m nearing deadline on a article and need to send it to my editor asap. Daily Candy also contacted me; they’ll be featuring a client of mine that I pitched to them last month. They’ll run an article next week, so we’re gearing up for that. My client is thrilled, and I’m happy because pitching is a lot of work and you don’t get a second chance if you screw up the first time. Happy that wasn’t the case here for my client.
Tomorrow evening, I’ll be covering a gallery show in the South End; so I’ll share that experience with you on Friday and I’ll try to share some photos if the gallery permits. For those of you who love art, I’m sure you’ll really enjoy it.
See you tomorrow!
[I had to add: Daily Candy Boston was GREAT to deal with, I was very impressed, and if you’ve never heard of Daily Candy (where have you been, man?), then by all means, sign up here.
Put a cork in it, will ya?
Put a cork in your living room, that is. This playful cork stool is a real eye catcher at $415. I’ve often dreamt of having a bottle of merlot big enough to hold a cork this size. Jasper Morrisson designed three variations of it, but I like this one the best. It could also double as an end table if you place a piece of circular glass on top.Mid Century Modern carries more than cork stools though, they offer furnishings that fit the modernist environment at prices that range from maybe baby to not in this lifetime. They also offer free shipping on all orders. Not too shabby.
I found a few semi-affordable items, a chic office chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames called the modernica for $395 that’s available in 12 very hip colors.
Another favorite find is the Danish inspired maple veneer bookcase, also available in walnut, designed by Daniel Donnelly. At first glance, I thought the entire bookcase was $475. Dream on. It is actually sold in 3 pieces, so the total cost is somewhere around $1375 as shown.
My final pick is the yanagi butterfly stool designed by Sori Yanagi for $550 in maple. It’s so elegant and sculptural, yet entirely functional as a stool. Also comes in rosewood for $595 and cherry for $700. Dainty, but strong, you know?
The launches of Domino, and O at Home have been quite a success this year for Shelter. Now, I’ve heard that there’s a new magazine and website kicking off this Summer ’06 called “Kitchen” magazine, available at newstands and online. They’re now accepting resumes, if you’re interested!
I’ll let you know as soon as I spot the issue – hopefully they’ll feature some fun kitchen decor and appliances, too!
